How to Set Goals for Physical Activity
Battling a sedentary mindset? Ready to get active?
Dr. Sara Powell is ready to help you set some goals.
Powell, assistant professor in the kinesiology department at Missouri State University, encourages people to not take on too much too soon, as it’s a recipe for being discouraged.
Even if you’re working out with a partner, Powell emphasizes that you should set individual goals. Genetics, body type, physical abilities and diet are all unique to you, so you shouldn’t compare yourself, she says.
